ChitoSil Wound Care Liquid Bandage is Superior Technology
Chitosan and Chelated Silver are the active ingredients in Chitosil Wound Care Liquid Bandage. Molecular sized particles of silver are evenly dispersed throughout a solution of Deionized water, Glycerin, and Chitosan Glycolate. Chitosil Wound Care Liquid Bandage is a clear liquid that typically turns light gold in color over time due to Chitosan and silver reacting with air. Chitosil Wound Care Liquid Bandage does not contain alcohol, and may therefore be used as often as desired without drying out your skin. In fact, our product is 100% natural with no chemicals or triclosan so it does not sting or irritate your wound.
Chelated Silver is far different from Colloidal Silver. In Colloidal Silver, nano-sized or even larger micron sized silver particles are suspended in solution and not evenly dispersed. In chelated silver, the silver molecules are chemically bonded into solution and therefore evenly dispersed. There are many, many research articles that may be found on these differences. In fact, there is much research in general, including by The Silver Institute, as to the history, medical uses and benefits of silver. Silver has been proven to be effective against a wide range of microorganisms detrimental to wound healing.
Below is an excerpt from The Silver Institute under Silver In Medicine:
“Silver’s association with anti-bacterial properties has long been established. The ancient Phoenicians knew enough to keep water, wine and vinegar in silver vessels to ensure freshness. It is only recently, however, that scientists have discovered why silver works. Quite simply, silver interrupts the bacteria cell’s ability to form the chemical bonds essential to its survival. These bonds produce the cell’s physical structure so when bacteria meets silver it literally falls apart. Wound dressings containing silver have been an important aspect of healthcare for more than a century; soldiers in World War I relied heavily upon such dressings.”
“Silver has actually been proven to promote the growth of new cells, thereby increasing the rate at which wounds can heal. And, unlike other metals with antimicrobial properties, it is not toxic to humans.”
“Another important use of silver as a biocide is in hospitals and other health care facilities. A life-threatening Staph germ called MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), often referred to as a “superbug,” is resistant to almost all chemical antibiotics, so many hospitals are employing silver-imbedded equipment including surgical tools, catheters, needles, stethoscopes, furniture, door handles and even paper files.”
